Praise for the IREMONGER TRILOGY:

‘IREMONGER torques and tempers our memories of Dickensian London into a singularly jaunty and creepy tale of agreeable misfits. Read it by gas lamp, with a glass of absinthe at your wrist and a fireplace poker by your knee.’ -- Gregory Maguire, author of WICKED.

‘A story wondrous fine, full of terrors and marvels.’ Kirkus, Starred Review.
